„You are the stream, the fish, the light,
the pulsing shadow.
You the unchanging presence, in whom all
moves and changes.“

—  Denise Levertov Poet 1923 - 1997

A Door in the Hive (1989), Flickering Mind
Contexto: You are the stream, the fish, the light,
the pulsing shadow.
You the unchanging presence, in whom all
moves and changes.
How can I focus my flickering, perceive
at the fountain's heart
the sapphire I know is there?
